As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Overview

Why We Love This

The Busy Buddy, or horse pacifier, is the ultimate relaxation tool for horses! It's the perfect way to encourage your horse to relax in a variety of situations without having to use supplements, medications, or techniques such as twitching. Developed for use with all horses at any stage of life or training. When horses are relaxed we can see gentle chewing, licking, or saliva which looks like foam. Activating the jaw generates relaxation throughout the horse’s entire body and brain, and the Busy Buddy stimulates this relaxation process. Made of industrial, hospital-grade Latex tubing, ThinLine bit guards, and elasticized rope.

The Halter Busy Buddy has been shown to help with fretting, biting, and kicking on the crossties. It can also provide a relaxing toy during clipping, grooming, and vet or farrier appointments. The Busy Buddy can also be used to gently introduce the sensation of a bit in the mouth while encouraging relaxation and chewing. Two clips attach the Busy Buddy to your halter.

The Bridle Busy Buddy is specially designed to be used with a bridle and a bit. It can help keep horses from chewing on your reins, and also relaxes them on trail rides for a better experience. This can also be used during horse shows while waiting to go in the ring. When used while lunging, it encourages relaxation of the jaw and muscles over the back. A clip and ring thread though the bit rings and attach this Busy Buddy to your bridle.

If you need to shorten your Busy Buddy, simply remove the hook with a pair of pliers, cut the rope to the perfect length, and reinstall the clip. The Busy Buddy should fit loosely in the horse’s mouth, it should not pull the corners of their mouth. Find the position where they begin to chew when inserting the Busy Buddy into your horse's mouth.

Made in the USA.
